Publisher's Summary

In this thrilling adventure - the start of the 'Trial of a Time Lord' story arc - The Tardis has been taken out of time and the Doctor has been brought before a court of his fellow Time Lords. There the sinister Valeyard accuses the Doctor of breaking Gallifrey's most important law and interfering in the affairs of other planets.

If the Valeyard can prove him guilty, the Doctor must sacrifice his remaining regenerations. To prove his case the Valeyard focuses on an adventure set in the Doctor's past. It is an adventure set on the planet Ravolox, a seemingly primitive world but one which the Doctor and Peri find strangely familiar...

Lynda Bellingham, who played the Inquisitor in the Doctor Who serial The ‘Trial of a Time Lord', reads Terrance Dicks' complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1988.

the Mysterious planet

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes and no. I feel certain sections are really good. While others are very slow and boring. But it does add a great detail to the story, which the television version didn't

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It makes you want to find out what happened next in the doctors trial

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The scenes with glitz in. A very funny character that really should have his own spinoff novel at some point. If they ever decide to do one.

Was Doctor Who: The Mysterious Planet (Classic Novel) worth the listening time?

Yes if your a fan of doctor who and in particularly a fan of the 6th doctor. Then you will love this story. But if your not a fan of doctor who. Well just don't buy it.
